CoinSilver Two Ounces 2022 Silverland - The Rock

The Cook Islands, a sovereign state in free association with New Zealand, uses two official legal tender currencies. The New Zealand Dollar circulates in parallel with the local Cook Islands Dollar; at the same time, the government also authorises many legal tender coins in the Cook Islands Dollar currency for collector's purposes.

Collector coins are dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to the country itself. Many of them are in standard bullion sizes, including the large two ounces of silver format - such as this coin.

The Mint says about this coin:
This incredible 2 oz silver proof is struck with many facets to create a coin like no other. The moment you hold this coin, you will be amazed how the light dances off its surfaces. You instantly start turning the coin in your hand to see all the different perspectives. You can also notice the different layers of the ultra-high relief that extend all the way to the edges. In fact, some of the highest relief can be found around the outside edge! This is only possible through the use of smartminting technology.

What do you think when you hold this incredible coin? Will you think of a brilliant diamond or of a geode stone with its crystals inside? Or about how this coin reminds you how multifaceted life can be? No matter what your perspective is, you will be amazed.

In tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the value: ELIZABETH II 10 DOLLARS COOK ISLANDS 2022.
